It was rather warm in Milwaukee when the Brewers hosted the Marlins on Saturday.
Milwaukee shortstop Orlando Arcia took advantage of the heat not only at the plate, but out on the field as well.
We aren't necessarily talking about a defensive gem Arcia made, but he did treat himself to some ice cream thanks to an unsuspecting fan during J.T. Riddle's at-bat.
In the top of the fourth, Riddle hit a pop fly to the left side of the field and into the seats. Arcia, knowing he couldn't make the play, witnessed a fan cooling down with a helmet bowl of ice cream -- and helped himself.
And why not? Arcia did hit a home run during the bottom of the fifth, so he proved he deserved it.
With regard to the approach that led to the ice cream tasting, Arcia said, "I try to do my best out there that way fans can enjoy it as much as I can when I'm out there, so I'm just trying to have fun."
Outfielder Domingo Santana also saw the interaction as part of Arcia's fun-centric approach to the profession. "It was funny," Santana said. "The guy was shocked, and then he, like smiled. So it was really nice."
This interaction brings us back to Don Mattingly's hand-in-the-cookie-jar moment with a fan's popcorn.
As both Mattingly and Arcia proved, sharing is caring.
